March 13th - Bold

Women's History Month Day 13 

We don't often think of women wearing bold prints in the 19th century, but bold prints went in and out of fashion several times over throughout the century.  This tintype from the very later 1860s to very early 1870s depicts this women owning her look in her bold print and flashy scarf.  She is a fashionable, middle class lady.

Found in Concord, MA, this unmarked tintype (as most were) leaves us wondering who she is and where she lived...but on a Monday morning just back from my vacation, I am surely sharing her expression...

Tintype purchased at Upstairs Antiques in Concord, MA
